I have the newest version of Yahoo messenger and and have downloaded skins from another site, but can't seem to be ablefor them to work. Could someone explain exactly how this is done, cause I did the replacing and adding to the skins folder, but still won't work. Any ideas?June 17, 2005 at 12:18 am #42124amy_d_gParticipant
Do you have version 6 or 7(BETA) of Yahoo?
What it sounds like to me is that you have downloaded skins for the old version(5). If you're not sure, then post a link to the site and I can tell you. In the old versions (before verson 6) skins went in the skins folder. BUT with 6 and 7, the skins folder isn't used (yeah, go figure) and instead the skins go into C:Program FilesYahoo!SharedGraphics. Old skins are not compatible with the newer versions.
Version 6 skins can be found:
at my site :p
at Toebee's site
These skins will also work on version 7 beta for the most part. There are a few new images that won't be skinned, but they are pretty unnoticable. I wouldn't expect any skins for 7 at least until it's official release.
If you can't get these skins to work, look here. If you still need help let us know!June 17, 2005 at 4:54 pm #42154CaJazzmanMember

There is a new skin available today. It is modeled after the Windows Media Player 10. It is also the first skin made for Yahoo's 7.0 beta messenger. I didn't get into to much detail with the new graphics since, I don't know what Yahoo plans to change before the final release. I haven't used all of the new features on Yahoo's 7.0 beta messenger yet so if you see somthing that doesn't look right please let me know here. Also for you 6.0 users this skin should work fine for you tooJanuary 10, 2006 at 3:57 pm #42232moony_200351Member
